I think it was ?78 for bed, breakfast and evening meal last year. Being a Yorkshireman, I'm not keen on paying that much and not having a meal included. (The Grand Canyon was formed when a Yorkshireman dropped a penny down a rabbit hole...). 78 quid for just B&B for one person seems pricey to me. I know a double works out cheaper overall, but Mrs. PP won't come any more to listen, as she puts it, to "a load of old blokes playing guitars".

Maybe Richard can use his charms to get the hotel to agree to our only having one evening meal, get a cheaper rate for that night and then we can go for a curry - and still get the function room for free (they aren't using it anyway at that time of year). If driving to the curry house is involved, we'll need volunteer drivers who don't partake of alcohol.

Scratchy's OK, as he can sleep in his Camper van Beethoven and eat curry to his heart's content (as long as it has a toilet...).

...it does. And it will also transport me and 6 weenies to a curry shop, provided three of them go end to end on the bed....!

Whilst being a curry fan, I would also point out that eating at the hotel gives us more time playing and drinking.

Still, I can recommend a couple of good places within 20 minutes drive however.

Points noted, I'll ring them tomorrow if I remember.

I would prefer a Chinese myself, but the thought of three in a bed in the boucing Scratchmobile is rather enticing although I'm not too sure about the trip back after all that curry  :-X

Phil, yes it does sound messy doesn't it!

Now as for the hotel, I've rung them and the lady who knows everything is away till next week, however I have acertained that weekends from 24 March on through April are all available at the minute.

So, can we firm up on the date noting we have Good Friday 6-9 April, the suggestion of  31March is that still a hot favourite ??? As yet I don't know if there is price difference but mid April might be a touch warmer etc etc 

Thoughts gentlemen please..........................

I'm easy...

Its nice to sit out on arrival, but probably not crucial.  If its a couple of quid, go for warmer.  If more, then go cheaper.

I've no specific dats to avoid.

As mentioned, we need to avoid the school holidays (anybody know when they are?). Personally, I might be able to make a couple of weeks before Easter, but not just one week before due to my daughter's wedding on Easter Saturday (7 April).

Re: temperature, Phil's right in that we're indoors. However, I do like to get out for a quick look at the local scenery/birdlife (no comments please, Richard). Not a worry though, as I can dress accordingly (yet again, no comments please, Richard).

Right weenies pay attention... I have provisionally booked 10 rooms at the same illustrious hotel for the weekend starting Friday 20 April - I think later is good with the weather etc etc

Now, can you please check your diaries,dairies and dance cards for that weekend and if we can manage a quorum or two I will get it confirmed. The prices as much as before ?80 for single B&B&D and the double for two at ?130 B&B&D

The date is not yet set in stone and cen be moved but note the weekends 6-8 and 13-16 April are not available.

Comments etc asp please as I do have to confirm, then post a proper notice with contact details etc.

Parlor Picker he say "yes!"  8)

Quick edit to add:

Please note that non-musicians (I'm almost one of them) are also welcome.

Also, this year it would be nice to have representatives from over the Atlantic and over the English Channel (what about it mainland European Weenies?).
